Bear Activities for Oct/2009

Education Tidbit

Black bears will typically enter their dens earlier than grizzly bears. With the recent cold weather some black bears may have already entered their den sites. Most grizzly bears that are regularly monitored in the area are still out feeding on a variety of foods, including the roots and corms of sub alpine plants.

Bear Activity Trends

Recent grizzly bear activity has been reported in Silvertip, Harvie Heights/ Benchlands, Grassi Corridor, Quarry/ Grassi Lake, Canmore Nordic Centre, Stewart Creek and Wind Valley Zones. Black bears have been reported at Lac Des Arcs, Bow River Channel and Rundleview Zones this week.

Grizzlies come in all different shapes and colours

Jutting into the North Pacific from Siberia, Kamchatka is a rugged peninsula of volcanic craters and steep valleys. While its impenetrability once made Kamchatka the perfect home of a notorious Soviet prison camp, its isolation also has kept it a haven for one of Earth’s last giants, the grizzly bear.

In fact, there are more grizzlies per square mile there than anywhere else on the planet. The discovery of this bear sanctuary gave two naturalists, Charlie Russell and Maureen Enns, the opportunity they’d been looking for — to live among the grizzlies and study them in close proximity to understand their true nature.

Kananaksis, Banff, Kootenay and Yoho are a just a few of the places you will find the grizzly and black bears.
